We hope to make setting up for the network at the
party very easy. We will be using DHCP to assign IP addresses and a WWW
page to distribute information, mods, maps, and anything else you might
need access to.
Please take time to examine this page closely. In order to provide the
fastest network possible, everyone needs to make sure they aren't creating
problems. Following the bandwidth conservation rules will not only help
your own connection, it will make everyone else's time more enjoyable as
For the sanity of the party staff, please prepare your machines before
you arrive at the party. There will be plenty of problems without us
having to help everyone configure their machines properly. Don't waste
your own time by not being prepared.
- For simplicity, I will assume that you would remove everything
except those things you need from the Network config under the Control
Panel. Here are the things you should have (working) before you play.
- Adapter:Ethernet Adapter
- Client:Client for Microsoft Networks
- Service:File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks
- You will need to check the properties of the TCP/IP protocol.
Basically you'll be reverting your IP settings back to a clean slate.
If you have a question about these instructions or have a suggestion,
please e-mail us.
